In a tweet acknowledging the marches, which were planned for the one-year anniversary of Trump entering office and aimed primarily at protesting his rhetoric and policies, Trump urged people to focus on economic successes since he became president.

"Beautiful weather all over our great country, a perfect day for all Women to March. Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months. Lowest female unemployment in 18 years!" Trump tweeted.

People took to the streets in cities across the U.S. on Saturday, including Washington, D.C., to protest the president's past rhetoric and policies regarding women and civil rights.

The marches were modeled after the demonstrations that took place a day after Trump entered office last year, which attracted millions of people around the world.

The past year has proven to be a landmark year for women in the fight for gender equality.

Women from Hollywood to Capitol Hill came forward to accuse various high-profile men of sexual misconduct.

Numerous women accused Trump of sexual misconduct before he entered office and have cited his remarks on the 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape, in which he openly bragged about grabbing women without their consent.
